It's hilly and cosmopolitan, and the river Tajo runs past it.  Looking at Portugal it is incredible to realize that this is the land that gave the world: Magellan, Vasco do Gama, Henry the Navigator, Carmen Miranda, Antonio Salazar, Steve Perry, and a host of others so numerous it makes you wonder why this little country?  How about inventions?  The astrolabe, the galleon, the first airship - come on...marmalade and tempura!

OK, an amazing place.  If you ever get the chance - go to Portugal.


The Christ the King statue is visible from all of Lisbon.

A typical city scape.  This is near The Museum of Decorative Arts.

In the Palace Yard... the largest square in Europe, sits King Jose I.  We had a wonderful lunch off the piazza and enjoyed another 4 star day!

The courtyard inside the monastery

The view from the second story walkway.  The detail in the carvings is amazing!
 I hope you like the pics.
